Hofstra University Model United Nations Conference
United Nations General Assembly Special Political and Decolonization CommitteeFourth Committee
Victoria RamettaChairperson
1Dear Delegates,I warmly welcome you to Special Political and Decolonization Committee at HofstraModel United Nations 2012! My name is Victoria Rametta, a second year student at HofstraUniversity and a member of the Model UN club for two years. It is my very distinct pleasure toserve as your chair in this thought-provoking and rewarding committee in which there is greatopportunity for you to think about and craft creative solutions to some of the world’s mostintractable and important problems.It comes as no surprise to many that I am the chair of this committee considering my liferevolves around politics. Since a very young age, my parents have always instilled in me thedrive to become an engaged and contributing citizen. I have strived for that in everything that Ido. Aside from my studies as a Political Science and Global Studies double major and keepingupdated with daily news, I work hard to stay active on campus. I am a Senator of StudentGovernment Association and Chairwoman of the Academic Affairs Committee, and I aminvolved in our College Libertarians Club. I am also studying Latin, for any of you would like tohelp me resurrect this dead language! In addition, I am Secretary of Model United Nations atHofstra, which entails much preparation for the conferences we attend as a delegation as well asthe conference we have created for you.This year our SPECPOL committee will concentrate on two very different and highlycontentious topics discussed worldwide. The former colonization of the African continent morethan a century ago has created much of the instability that is still seen today. In order for this beautiful region to someday flourish, the United Nations needs to establish creative, tangibleways to remedy these problems. The committee’s second topic, Kashmir, has been an issue of 
2dispute for some time. Finding a solution to this important problem will require addressing theinterests of all parties involved. It is now your task to research and brain storm for possible waysin which both topics can be resolved on a world platform, the United Nations. I sincerely look forward to debating these controversial ideas and meeting my future committee delegates!Best,Victoria Ramettavramet1@pride.hofstra.edu
